Valentine's Pudding


♥Happy Valentines Day♥

I hope your day is as sweet as can be, filled with love and surrounded by the sweethearts in your life! Here is a little treat I made for the love's of my life this Valentine's Day. Nothing says I love you more than homemade pudding. I assembled my pudding in already made chocolate heart cups topped with chocolate curls and fresh raspberries.

Chocolate Pudding


2 cups of whole milk
1/2 cup of sugar
1/3 cup of cocoa powder
4 tsp of cornstarch
4 large egg yolks
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp of fine salt


Put 1 1/2 cups of milk and sugar into a saucepan, bring to a boil. Simmer over med/high heat then remove from heat. Do not let boil. Whisk the remaining 1/2 cup of milk, cornstarch, salt, and egg yolks, and vanilla in a bowl. Gradually whisk the hot milk mixture in with the egg mixture. Return the combined mixtures over medium/high heat whisking constantly until the pudding comes to a full boil. Reduce the heat to remain a simmer, continue whisking until the pudding becomes thick. Cover with plastic wrap so a skin does not form and place in refrigerator over night until set.

Vanilla Pudding


2 cups of whole milk
1/2 cup of white sugar
2 whole large eggs
3 Tbs cornstarch
1/4 tsp fine salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbs butter


In a medium saucepan over med/high heat, heat milk. Do not bring to a boil. In a bowl, combine sugar, cornstarch, salt. Pour mixture into milk a little at a time stirring to dissolve. Whisk eggs in a separate bowl and slowly add to the mixture. Whisk constantly until mixture thickens. Do not bring to a boil or you will scramble your eggs. Remove from heat and add vanilla and butter. Chill overnight.
